Hello all..I know I just vanished without a clue… I was on a vacation.. & now I’m back with a bang.. 🙂 with fresh ideas after the holiday.. !! Still fatigued though from the trip.. was a very hectic trip.. we had so many places to visit & so little time at hand.. I still have a lot of sleep to catch up on.. ! 😛
Travelled around a few countries in Europe… ate some authentic German, French, Italian & Belgian food.. 🙂 Happy both gastronomically & with all the beautiful places I got to visit with an added perk of catching up with a good old friend from college.. 🙂
The different cultures, the history, the well maintained monuments & churches, the lovely streets filled with tourists milling around everywhere.. the tiny restaurants..with the variety of food.. smell of freshly baked waffles/croissants/crepes… was heaven..! & Yes, I tasted the original alcohol soaked black forest cake from the Black forest region in Germany… You would get a high just by smelling a slice of that cake..!
Well, I’ll keep updating you more about my trip for a while now 🙂 since there is so much to say.. 🙂 Since we were out for 15 days & all the perishables were emptied before we left for our vacation.. all I had, was a packet of frankfurters.. & I was a wee bit lazy to cut the frankfurters n fry them, so thought why not wrap them up in between an omelette after frying them… K loved them right away when I placed the plate in front of him.. Here’s how you can make yourself a yummy breakfast..
Ingredients: (Serves 1) Preparation Time: 10 mins
Smoked frankfurters – 1
Eggs – 1, beaten well
Garlic – 1/2 a pod, finely chopped
Basil leaves – 1-2, torn roughly
Freshly ground black peppercorns – as per your taste
Cooking Oil – a few drops
Salt to taste
Heat a fry pan, set the heat to medium. Add the frankfurter & fry it till it gets cooked. Take it off the heat & keep aside.
Now add a few drop of oil to the centre of the fry pan, add the finely chopped garlic & sauté it for a few seconds or till the aroma of garlic fills the room, do not let them turn brown. Spread the garlic around the centre of the pan, maybe in a diameter of 4-5 inches. Pour the beaten egg over the sautéed garlic. Sprinkle some salt evenly around the omelette, also add the torn basil leaves evenly around, over the omelette, immediately add some crushed black pepper too. Remember all this needs to be done quickly; we do not want the omelette to get cooked from the top.. else wrapping it would not be possible..
Tip: For the first time you can probably turn the heat to low after you pour the egg over the garlic.. this will buy you time.
While the top of the egg is still uncooked add the fried frankfurter on top, as shown. When the bottom of the omelette is firm enough begin to roll the omelette around the frankfurter as shown. Cook this on both sides once you have wrapped the omelette around.
Serve hot with plain/ toasted bread. Enjoy!
